Employer Matching Gifts

Your donation can make double the impact!

Did you know your employer may actually match the dollars you give to Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge dollar per dollar? Many businesses — from corporate America to regional upstarts — have matching gift programs to encourage employees to donate money to charities.

Double the impact of your gift through your company’s matching gift program!

Some businesses also establish foundations with gift-match programs wherein employees can donate to a charity and the foundation matches the gift at some level.

As a 501(c)(3) organization, we are eligible for many matching gift programs. Contact your employer’s HR Department to see if a program is available to match your Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge donation.

It’s Easy to Participate. Follow these Three Simple Steps:

1) Check with your Human Resources department to see if your company has a matching gift program.

2) Print or request the Matching Gifts Form/Application from your company (often available from the Human Resources department), review the guidelines and verify that Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge is eligible, and fill it out completely. This form will require our tax identification number 23-1695361. Click here to get a copy of our tax id number and IRS determination letter.

3) Once our organization is approved as a charity by your employer, send the completed Marching Gift form along with your donation or receipt from your recent donation to:

Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge
c/o Finance Department
P.O. Box 98, Rehrersburg, PA 19550

We will complete our portion of the form and mail it back to your employer.
Are you retired? You may still be eligible to participate through your former employer’s matching gift program.

We’ll handle the rest, and the company will send its matching donation directly to Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge.

Double Your Previous Donations—at no cost to you!
Did you know that in most cases you can also submit previous donations (as long as they have been made within the same employer’s fiscal year) for your employer’s matching gift program. Ask your HR department for eligibility to retroactively match same fiscal year donations.
